The OBA Class Actions Law Section is pleased to welcome back the  monthly series to help you keep up with class action decisions from the past month.
Our “Keeping Up With The Case Law” series will be a monthly thirty minute call-in session. You will hear a high level account of what key class action decisions were released by courts across Canada in the last month, led by lawyers experienced in class action litigation.

This series is designed to help members stay current in a convenient and easy format. From 8:30-9am, dial-in from the comfort of your office or home or as you make your way into work. Just dial-in and hit mute!

GET INVOLVED: New and recent calls who would like to get involved by either researching or presenting topics are encouraged to email tbird@oba.org
